Box Cottage is a wonderful family home offering light-filled flexible accommodation arranged over three floors, carefully combining the convenience of modern living with character features, including some exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace. The ground floor accommodation flows from a welcoming reception hall and comprises a spacious triple aspect sitting room with a feature fireplace with wood burning stove, a large picture window and French doors to a front aspect terrace, both providing stunning views over surrounding countryside. There is also a generous dual aspect dining room with wooden flooring and a stone-built inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove and a well-proportioned front aspect study with neighbouring cloakroom. The ground floor is completed by a modern fitted kitchen with a range of wall and base units, worktops with matching breakfast bar and integrated appliances. There are stairs down to a useful cellar and a door to a fitted utility room with access to the rear garden. On the first floor, there is a lovely principal bedroom which has, arguably, one of the best views in the county. There is an en suite and a small balcony ideal for morning coffee. Two further bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room can be found.<br /><br />The property is approached over a tarmacadam driveway providing parking for multiple vehicles and giving access to a detached garage with adjoining open-fronted store. The part-walled front garden is laid to lawn and features a generous paved terrace off the sitting room, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining. Set also within the front garden stands a newly installed purpose built home office/garden room offering a multitude of uses. To the rear of the house is a large paved terrace which gives access to a lower area of mainly to gently sloping lawn, the whole enjoying stunning elevated views over neighbouring countryside.<br /><br />Located in the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the small hamlet of Cann Common lies near to the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury, which offers a good range of day-to-day amenities including High Street and boutique shopping, numerous restaurants and cafés, a community hospital and a library. Gillingham also offers a wide range of shopping, services, recreational and leisure facilities along with a good range of restaurants. A cinema and a theatre are available in the cathedral city of Salisbury. The area is renowned for its excellent variety of field sports with racing at Salisbury and Wincanton, golf at Rushmore and South West Wilts and a range of water sports on the nearby south coast. Communications in the area are excellent with the A30 providing a link to the national motorway network, London and the West Country and Gillingham station offering mainline services to London Waterloo. The area offers a good selection of state primary and secondary schools as well as a wide range of noted independent schools including Port Regis, Clayesmore, Sandroyd, Hanford, Knighton House and Bryanston.
